Residents rights

With many years’ experience, the management of Abode Care Homes pride ourselves on offering a highly professional care service for the older person with social and personal care needs with a personal touch.

When people have worked hard throughout their life and have been committed to helping others, we think they deserve extra cherishing. They need a home where individuality is emphasised, with staff that have time to give attention to small detail, and where they have the choice of enjoying the company of like-minded fellow Service Users. 

The company embraces the rights of all Service Users:

PRIVACY: The right of a Service User to be left alone and undisturbed whenever they wish.

DIGNITY: The understanding of a Service Users needs and treating them with respect.

INDEPENDENCE: Allowing a Service User to take calculated risks, to make their own decisions and think and act for themselves.

CHOICE: Giving a Service User the opportunity to select for themselves from a range of alternative options.

RIGHTS: Keeping all basic human rights available to the Service Users.

FULFILMENT: Enabling the Service User to realise their own aims and helping them to achieve these goals in all aspects of daily living.

Abode Care Homes aim to provide its Service Users with a secure, relaxed, and homely environment in which their care, well being and comfort are of prime importance.

Carers strive to preserve and maintain the dignity, individuality and privacy of all Service Users within a warm and caring atmosphere, and in so doing will be sensitive to the Service Users ever-changing needs. Such needs may be medical/therapeutic (for physical and mental welfare), cultural, psychological, spiritual, emotional and social.  This will be achieved through carefully considered care planning and programmes of activities designed to encourage mental stimulation, self esteem, and social interaction with other Service Users and with recognition of the core values of care which are fundamental to the philosophy of our Home.

Service Users, family and friends are encouraged to participate in the development and reviewing of their individualised Care Plans as appropriate and their input is greatly valued.
